And WOW, what a trip thusfar.
This will make post 391, and I still can't believe I've pumped out so many words in such a tight timeframe. I've blogged almost daily for an entire year.
Some fun stats for MOPI during it's first 12 months:
- 776 followers to date (soooo close to 777, but oh well)
- As of 9:45am on 1/21/12, my blog has been viewed over 300,000 times
- 391 posts, with over 8,600 comments.
- 4 layout redesigns
- 3 guest posts by 2 guest bloggers (and I'm always looking for more)
And about 200,000 words written. Funny, even though I've written almost 400 posts, my second post ever of chopping down my first Christmas tree is still my favorite. I wonder how I'm going to top it? Maybe I should go hunting...
Thank you all for your comments, your support, and following my fucked up world. I'm slowly adjusting to the Idaho scene, but will always see myself as an outsider.
I refuse to listen to country music. I refuse to drink the Mormon koolaid. I refuse to become a meth user or start my own potato farm. I still say 'dude.' I will always, in essence, be a Californian living in Idaho.
Which is why this blog will go on. I'm living in My Own Private Idaho and am willing to take you along for the ride, if you're willing to put up with my nonsense.
Cheers. Here's to another fun year, hundreds of new and entertaining stories, and continued growth. I'm working on a fun post for Monday, to start year #2 off right. See you then!
